BATESVILLE—Two University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville students were recently awarded the Independence County Arkansas Alumni Chapter’s Scholarship to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.
Each student received $500 to help with the cost of their education. These scholarships are awarded to transfer students seeking to continue their education at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville after completing a degree at UACCB.
Jennifer Theos and Hannah Stroud both earned their Associate of Arts in General Education degree from UACCB. Theos, a Memphis native, said Arkansas was where she belonged. She will use her scholarship to help with tuition costs at Fayetteville where she is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in horticulture, landscape and turf sciences. She is minoring in agricultural business and anticipates she will graduate in May 2017.
